Just for fun

This was emailed to me the other day, and I thought it was amusing enough to share. I have edited some of the content to make it suitable for all readers.

The International Rules of Manhood

1: Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.

2: It is OK for a man to cry ONLY under the following circumstances:

3: Any Man who brings a camera to a bachelor party may be legally killed and eaten by his buddies.

4: Unless he murdered someone in your family, you must bail a friend out of jail within 12 hours.

5: If you've known a guy for more than 24 hours, his sister is off limits forever unless you actually marry her.

6: Moaning about the brand of free beer in a buddy's fridge is forbidden. However complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable.

7: No man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another man. In fact, even remembering your buddy's birthday is strictly optional.

8: On a road trip, the strongest bladder determines pit stops, not the weakest.

16: Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate knowledge of the game and the ability to drink as much as the other sports watchers.

17: Never hesitate to reach for the last beer or the last slice of pizza, but not both, that's just greedy.

18: If you compliment a guy on his six-pack, you'd better be talking about his choice of beer.

19: Never join your girlfriend or wife in discussing a friend of yours, except if she's withholding sex pending your response.

20: Never talk to a man in a bathroom unless you are on equal footing: i.e., both urinating, both waiting in line, etc. For all other situations, an almost imperceptible nod is all the conversation you need.

22: Thou shalt not buy a car in the colors of brown, pink, lime green, orange or sky blue.

23: The girl who replies to the question "What do you want for Christmas?" with "If you loved me, you'd know what I want!" gets an Xbox. End of story.

24: There is no reason for guys to watch Ice Skating or Men's Gymnastics. Ever.

Rust in Peace

"Due to the graphic nature of this program viewer discretion is advised."

According to the title you may be thinking what the heck is Rust in Peace? Well, it's my new acquisition into the discography of Megadeth. I know that most of the blog ring doesn't care for my musical taste, but that's okay. We are all entitled to a wonderful thing called opinion. That being said, I thought that some of you may like to know why on earth I, the laid back one, would ever like the music known as Metal.

I feel I can sum up my love for this music in a few words; intensity, complexity and lyrical content. Megadeth and Tourniquet, my two favorite groups, is who came to mind when I thought of these words.

Intensity: This refers to how each instrument is played
Complexity: Refers to the way each instrument is presented
Lyrical Content: Refers to how the lyrics always makes me think about the point that is being conveyed

That's just a few main examples of my love for Megadeth, Tourniquet and Metal in general. I bid you all good evening.

I've created the B.D.C.

So, it's been almost a month since my last post and I've missed writing every day. I need to start writing more often to give people something to read. It has been brought to my attention that there have been some complaints from the B.D.C. (See Whine. Oh, And Blog Point Challenge on The Smug Cloud) I say to the blog princess and the B.D.C. go ahead and dock me points, I dare you. By the way, B.D.C. stands for Blogland Department of Complaints.

On another note, I heard a kind of funny joke this week while listening to Bob Zany on the Bob and Tom show. "Does a pessimist coffee drinker see their cup as half and half empty?" Also, it was a great time last night going to Olive Garden with Kimmy and Cynthia. Thank You again, Cynthia! While out and about last night, I bought my first Sudoku book. I have one for the computer, but this is something I needed in my hand to write on. I didn't buy easy since I find those... well, easy. I went right for the not-so-easy also known as medium.

That's all I have to say for now, and I'm going to try and blog more than once a month. Maybe I'll start out with twice a month. Come on, what did you expect, everyday?
